Independence coach Paul Riley hopes that his team's second of three straight road games goes better than the first. The Independence suffered their first-ever Women's Professional Soccer loss with last week's 2-1 defeat in St. Louis against the Athletica. Now it's on to Chicago for Saturday's 7 p.m. game with the Red Stars. The Independence are 2-1-2 while Chicago is just 1-3-1, although the one win was a 2-0 victory at Boston, a place where the Independence played the Breakers to a 1-1 draw.

Cullen's snap shot in the third round slipped between Corey Crawford's legs, and Patrick Sharp then hit the crossbar for Chicago. The Blackhawks and San Jose were the only teams to start 6-0 this year. The Wild improved to 4-1 at home. Goals by Andrew Shaw and Jonathan Toews early in the first period prompted the Wild to pull goalie Josh Harding for Niklas Backstrom.

Ulf Dahlen didn't wait long to make an impression on his new teammates. Playing in his first game since Chicago acquired him from San Jose over the weekend, Dahlen scored the winning goal at 3:32 of the third period to lead the visiting Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers last night. "If I missed that shot, it would have been embarrassing," Dahlen said of his game-winner. "Tony made the play - I just put it into an empty net. " Dahlen referred to Tony Amonte, who had scored his 31st goal 38 seconds into the period to tie the game.

I'VE JUST returned from an end-of-summer family trip to Chicago, and I feel like I understand Philadelphia better than ever. Travel is a risk for Philadelphians because it raises touchy questions like, "Why not here?" The downside risk is that the question leads to resignation. The upside risk is that it leads to inspiration. Get enough people inspired and "Why not here?" becomes a slogan rather than a question. Recently though, Chicago has been used as an example to avoid.

"Wonder where they got the name Chicago?" My lunch partner with the inquiring mind likes to know such things, particularly since the restaurant in the Pennsauken Country Club looks like a restaurant in a country club and not a bit like one in the Windy City. Seems that the restaurant started out as Chicago at another South Jersey location and then moved with the name intact. These days, following the recent announcement that Chicago has been singled out by a leading wine magazine for its outstanding wine list, business has been so hot that it could remind you of the Chicago fire.

THE 2014 Eagles will play two preseason games before fans get to see them at Lincoln Financial Field. The NFL announced preseason schedules yesterday, minus dates and times. The Eagles will kick off 2014 in Chicago, then play at New England. That game is expected to be accompanied by joint Patriots-Eagles practices, as was the case last season, only those were at NovaCare and these will be in Massachusetts. The third week of the preseason, the Eagles host the Steelers before continuing the tradition like no other, a preseason finale against the Jets contested largely by guys who aren't going to make either roster.

Last week at about this time, the Eagles were sky high after their amazing victory over Washington. But they got their feet on the ground quickly, knowing that they had to prepare for the Super Bowl champion 49ers. This week, they don't exactly have that far to float after losing to the 49ers, but they still have a scintillating matchup to look forward to. That's the way the Eagles' early-season schedule goes - big games week after week, with no time to stop and analyze the meaning of the last performance.

THE YOUNG Detroit Red Wings have made the mighty Chicago Blackhawks look vulnerable, beating them two straight times to gain an advantage in their last playoff matchup as Western Conference rivals. Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller scored 31 seconds apart midway through the second period and Pavel Datsyuk restored a two-goal lead in the third to help Detroit beat visiting Chicago, 3-1, last night and take a 2-1 lead in the second-round series. As good as the Red Wings have looked - scoring six straight goals to earn momentum in the series - their hard-driving coach isn't ready to celebrate.

"Whin ye see two men set in opposite corners while one mutters 'thraiter' an' th' other hisses 'miscreent,' ye can bet they're two Dimmycratic leaders tryin' to reunite th' party. " So spake the barkeep philosopher Mr. Dooley, the long ago creation of that great Chicago humorist, Finley Peter Dunne. In his pithy way, Mr. Dooley was saying the same thing as the German philosopher Hegel, who held that a political party can be said truly to exist only when it is divided against itself.

Former Mayor Michael Nutter is having no trouble filling his time since leaving office. His plate got fuller Monday, when the University of Chicago announced his appointment as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics.

His perspective from inside City Hall will touch on topics such as how "crisis management can upend a mayoralty, the challenges of institutionalizing change after an election, and what the outcome of the 2016 presidential election will mean for America's big cities," according to a news release.

CHICAGO - Pete Mackanin will listen to the stadium organist on Friday afternoon when the Phillies begin batting practice at Wrigley Field. He'll be waiting to hear his high school fight song. Mackanin will then peer up to Gary Pressy, the longtime man behind the music at the iconic ballpark, and pump his fist when the tune begins. The Phillies manager, who took a winding journey to get here this weekend, will be home again.

Sometimes a house calls out, "I'm the one," and for those who believe in the validity and power of instinct, it truly is. Such was the case with Jeff Hansbro, who came upon a circa-1910 Tudor on a quiet street in Bala Cynwyd. But here's the tricky part: His future wife was not there, and the decision had to be made quickly. Talk about pressure, and trust. Jeff, vice president of a product-development firm for the sleep industry, discussed the house with his fiancée, still back in Chicago at her job. She agreed, sight unseen, that it was a go. "You can imagine how Jeff was feeling when I first saw the house.

Victorious (EMI/Ume ***) After that metal mess of a performance from the Hollywood Vampires at the Grammys last week (Alice Cooper, yes; Johnny Depp, no), it's good to hear that cleaving heavy rawk isn't just for dilettantes - that Australia's Wolfmother and leader Andrew Stockdale have something to say on the matter. Sure, that might seem a wee disingenuous, considering Stockdale's interchangeable band has done little but ape Blue Cheer and regurgitate aged Zep and Sabbath riffs since its 2004 debut.
